It's July!

How is it already July?? Time is flying by.... And every day with this girl is better than the previous.

Laura designed a cute cute desktop for July... and I might just recruit her to keep doing them! Thanks friend! Click here to get it.

One of our family's favorite holidays is this Friday - Independence Day - and I can't wait to share it with our little bug.  I think she's going to like it!


June... is a little late!

 I'll post up a July desktop ON TIME :)

We went on a little vacation with my family and it was so so wonderful.  We stayed in Watercolor on 30A, but were so close to Seaside we got to experience both areas and we loved it! Biking, walking over a lake, and enjoying some sand in our toes was good for the soul.  And watching our little Jane bug experience it all for the first time was even more good for the soul.  She had a great time and we did too!


life is happening...

And it's busy - but I love it.

Summer is quickly approaching and I'm excited about all that comes for Jane's first summer.  We are already loving the chunky exposed thighs when she's wear a bubble.  She is really coming into her cute little personality and I can't wait to see it even more over the next few months.

She's already 6 months old (tomorrow) and I can't believe it!! Time is flying.

I'm slacking on creating my own desktops these days... but here is one I am enjoying.  Maybe one day I'll start creating my own again... I chose the one with the flowers in the corners.

Happy May! Get outside and enjoy the new blooms of the year!

Life is happening.... I'm enjoying every minute of it and my new role!

Here is an April Desktop I've been enjoying. I know.. I just totally skipped March. Whoops!


4 photos and a desktop

It's true... once you have a baby the only photos you take are of the baby... she's just so darn cute! I can't help it.

Hello there... She's getting good at holding that head up!

My friend Allison gave Jane this hilarious octopus toy (and coordinating fabric book) called "Captain Calamari" and I refer to him as The Captain.  She is much more alert in her seat these days (eventually falls asleep), so I thought she might want something to look at and brought out the captain to see if she would be interested like Allison said her daughter was.... and sure enough, she immediately started talking to him! It was hilarious.  The start of a long friendship I'm sure...
(oh, and yes, her paci is HUGE... that is the ONLY brand she will take and that's the next size... at least she will grow into it!)

My sweet Aunt Gail sent Jane a package last week with the most adorable outfit and this necklace.  It's a single pearl necklace that was my Granny's. Aunt Gail said she knew I would find the perfect time to give it to Jane.  Tears were flowing.

Today was a big day... Jane started going to "school." She will go three days a week so I can go to meetings and work, and my dear friend Amy is the director at the school and I have a friend who is a teacher, so I know she is in great hands.  Jane of course did wonderful and didn't cry at all! I only cried when I got back to the car as I was headed to work.  I'll miss my little sidekick these three days, but I know she will love being around the other kids.  She already loves watching her cousins and older friends!

I couldn't get her to look up...

You can go get the February desktop over here... Maybe I'll be back again before it's time for another desktop. ;)


the honest company

A year or so ago (can't remember exactly when it happened), I saw Jessica Alba on the Today Show talking about her company, The Honest Company.  The organic/all-natural company selling products for families.  Diapers, home products, skin products and more.  I immediately checked it out and read all about the products.  I was sold and couldn't wait to try them for our baby on the way.  I couldn't handle how adorable the diapers were and Dudley and I did a comparison and they are close in price to Pampers.  Bonus with Honest, they ship straight to your house and come with wipes too!  I love the wipes.

Our recent monthly shipment of diapers and wipes!  So far the numbers they have allotted for the diaper size has worked great for us.

These little diapers are just too cute for me and they have kept her little booty free from diaper rash!

We have loved these diapers for little Jane.  The newborn size diapers were a little longer in the front than pampers, so we used those for awhile.  Since we are a monthly bundle subscriber we were offered a free product, so I chose the lotion.  Jane had some serious dry skin and no lotion we had was helping.  I thought I'd give this a try and sure enough it has made her skin just perfect!  I'm definitely sold on this company and the next products I want to try are the shampoo and body wash and the conditioner.


eeeh hem... is this thing on?

2014.. Here we are!  I've been enjoying my days at home these past 2 months with the happiest, sweetest, and cutest little Jane bug you ever did meet.

We are just smitten with this little girl. She is just such a treasure.

On another note... Leslie and I designed a planner (with the help of Laura) and they are available for purchase!  At first we were just going to make them for ourselves, but then we started hearing from friends that they would be interested, too.  We couldn't find a planner that we loved, but had aspects from different planners that we loved... So we thought we would put them all together!  Plus it's really cute thanks to Laura's cover!

It has a laminated cover and back.
Month at a glance.
Weekly spreads.
Tons of notes pages in the back.

If you want your very own, head over to Leslie's page and purchase one!  We decided we would sell them for $22 (including shipping), or if you are in Memphis and want to coordinate meeting Leslie or me you can choose the $18 option.

And in honor of our cute planners, I am back with the January desktop calendar! Go here to get it.

Happy New Year everyone!
